The Centre for New Writing’s Literature Live reading series brings the best known contemporary writers from all over the world to Manchester to discuss and read from their work.
Michael Hofmann was born in Germany, grew up in England, and teaches at the University of Florida. Ingenious and brilliantly entertaining, One Lark, One Horse (2018), his fifth collection, ends a twenty-year poetic silence.
He is known for translations of Döblin, Kafka, Fallada, Benn and Joseph Roth. His reviews and criticism are gathered in Behind the Lines (2001) and Where Have You Been? (2014).
Igor Klikovac is a poet whose work is as shaped by his Sarajevo roots as by his travels: long-resident in London where he works as a journalist, Stockholm Syndrome (Smith Doorstop) translates work from his fourth Bosnian collection, translated by the poet and John McAuliffe.
